COVID-19 information

As we diligently follow COVID-19 updates and developments from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), most Vitality Bowls locations remain open as our team closely follows all public health recommendations to keep our customers, employees and communities healthy and safe.

Our goal has always been to provide the most nutritious food possible to our customers, and we are dedicated to that mission now more than ever.

Some aspects of the Vitality Bowls experience have been modified, including some locations limiting dining experiences to take-out and delivery only. Please contact your local Vitality Bowls regarding in-store dining availability.

We are confident that we will get through this together as a community. In the meantime, Vitality Bowls is here for you, to provide healthy, nutritious meals for you and your family.
